The Counter-Revolution of Science
by Friedrich A. Hayek
Publisher: Free Press 1955
Number of pages: 265

These thinkers purported to have discovered the supposed 'laws' of society and concluded that an elite of social scientists should assume direct control of social life. The Counter-Revolution of Science is Nobel Laureate Friedrich Hayek's forceful attack on this abuse of reason.
